Howdy!

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods, and that you are enjoying the summer.

I am writing to let you know about the latest step in this increasingly bizarre story, I am being charged with contempt of court. The hearing is on June 21 at 9 AM. This is on top of the permanent injunction against my blog, along with a request for $25,000 in damages

If you aren’t certain what it is exactly all about, there is this article from the Montreal Gazette Article about it http://tinyurl.com/2pqfa4

As an attempt to show my guilt they are using Google’s cache of my blog post, http://tinyurl.com/2lvs8o and they are also saying that the article in the Hour about this case is more proof of my guilt http://tinyurl.com/3asn3fand the Metroblogging Montreal post that I wrote about the case http://tinyurl.com/3dkt3e is something like the final nail in the coffin. All of which is patently absurd.

If you choose to write about this, please be careful in choosing your words so that you do not get sued yourself, but if you would like to show people what I am being sued for try these:

  1. i love that duncan is posting this article in order to avoid so called non-compliance with the MPL standards of canadian content…

    xo
    eh

  2. Duncan needs to embrace Rush.

  3. Rush suck. It’s not my fault. I know that you and Scott love it but it… just sucks. Sorry.

  4. What else did Canda ever produce of note?

  5. a helluva lot of your electricity and water resources…

    and better beer.

    mayhaps a nation with a conscience?

    politeness.

    and chesterfields.

  6. and Alpha Flight.

  7. Dude. Whoever is suing this guy for libel is obviously a bad parent, incompetent representative, suffers from erectile dysfunction, and is a pedophile. And probably a terrorist. Who listens to smooth jazz.

    Oh, shit. Did I just open myself up for libel? Damn. Whatever you do, don’t take my assets.

    ’cause you’ll need an awfully big… uh… teaspoon to carry them in.

  8. Good comment, Brad Farwell — they can kiss your assets.

  9. Seriously this guy is getting screwed and where can I send my letter in support?

    Scary stuff.

  10. It is VERY scary. A letter from a lawyer might have a good effect.
